Last Thursday, May 1 the CFHS softball team defeated Byron by the score of 9 to 3.
"We really hit the ball well throughout the entire game," coach Michael Gunderson said. Leading hitters were Tatum Pickar, Gabby Heckmann, Brooke Peters, and Taylor Eddy.
"Brooke Peters really put on a power display by pounding out two homeruns. The first one was a real moon shot! She really put some energy into our team by her performance," Gunderson said.
The winning pitcher was Gabby Heckmann, with a little help from fellow hurler Lydia Franken who came in to pitch the last three innings.
"Byron is a strong hitting team, and beating them is always a treat," Gunderson said.
Monday night, May 5, the squad traveled to Goodhue and defeated them 15 to 4.
"Lydia wasn't really on her "A" game, but really battled for the win," Gunderson said. "Offensively, we used a balanced attack of spreading out 10 hits."
Franken and Becca Vandenheuval led the way with three and two hits respectively. Cannon blew the game open with a 7-run 3rd inning and a 6-run 4th.
Cannon is currently tied for second place in the conference. They are at Zumbrota-Mazeppa on Wednesday, at home against Hayfield on Thursday, at Stewartville on Friday, at home against Wabasha-Kellogg Monday, back at Stewartville on Tuesday, and at Kasson-Mantorville on Wednesday, May 14.
